A beautiful wooden church with a beautiful altar, worth visiting and seeing

The present state is a very well-kept church from the 19th century, but the beginnings date back to the 13th century. Around the church there is a cemetery where there are burials from the post-war period to the 1980s of the 20th century

The church is mentioned already in 1417. In the following century, the object was taken over by Protestants. The current temple dates from the eighteenth century. The construction of this wooden church was completed in 1711. The interior is decorated with neo-baroque polychrome from the nineteenth century in the form of ornamental and floristic stripes. The Baroque main altar dates from the 18th century. Stations of the cross in the folk style are from the nineteenth century. The surroundings around the church are well cared for, it is worth coming and seeing.

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
